Re: Blyth statement

An employer can’t refuse a resignation whether it is a fixed-term or permanent contract. They will have to accept it and the employee will be legally required to work their notice period. …..

Re: New Manager Poll

I reckon David McGurk is interested, apparently he was at the game on Saturday. Experienced with running an Academy, UEFA A Licensed, publicly stated he turned down the job before as it was the right club at the wrong time and he would want the summer to work with his players in his first job of man...

Re: Squad for Next Season

I've heard contrasting rumours regarding Holness and Nicholson. Suppose it depends who you listen to. I’d be pleased if Nicholson is on a 2 year deal. The same with Elliot. My only question would be that now TW has left, do they still want to be here? (Taking into consideration their travel etc, et...

Re: York V Darlington

Outworked today. As for the tactics, hit the ball into space relentlessly seemed to be the order. Of course we lacked any composure, and guess what, the minute York had their tails up and started to press we then started finding the man, only to be caught out as we don’t know what to do with it!

Re: Darlington v Stockport

I’m desperate for this to work for TW, but today was poor again. The formation suited us more, we defended well for large-parts, but there isn’t much else to shout-about. We just don’t look like a team, there doesn’t seem to be any understanding in the forward play. Ironically we’ve gone from a team...

Re: Darlington v Bradford (Park Avenue)

Must say the highlights don't make for good viewing. Zero movement or coherence between team mates - it looks like training ground issues to me, particularly relevant given the questions over our fitness relative to our opponents and our injury record. We look like a team of individuals to me. Yep....

Re: Darlington v Bradford (Park Avenue)

How many times has Ainge actually played up front this season though? Four, maybe five? He missed 2 matches through injury, he played 2 or 3 in defence - he hasn't had a huge amount of time in the position that we signed him to play. IIRC, Styche and Ainge started together in the following games; D...

Re: Darlington v Bradford (Park Avenue)

Yesterday was disappointing, I haven’t seen us win at home since March. The first-half yesterday was so similar to the performances against Curzon Ashton and Altrincham. I didn’t really agree with the line-up, it basically read like a 4-1-3-2 with Elliot being responsible for the midfield. It wasn’t...

Both him and Elliot have been outstanding when paired together. Great to hear tha...

Re: Darlington V Alfreton Match Thread

Yep, I don’t think DJ would make any rash decisions either - as a club we need stability. TW deserves a fair few more games yet IMO, we’re not even in a position to even consider replacing TW so early in the season because things aren’t going our way. I still think there’s a lot more to come from th...

Re: TW tactics......again!

I think Gramps’ assessment is a fair one, as Henshall is yet to demonstrate he is better than Gillies albeit with limited appearances, but he may still well be given time.

Personally I think we could do with an Alan White style centre-half next to Galbraith.

Re: TW tactics......again!

No I haven't. However, you would think that there would be a pecking order to his selection of youth players rather than just plucking anyone to place on the bench. Glover for example has come on a few times and I think started a couple of matches last season, he has been held in high regard by TW ...

No positives from todays performance - other than Trotman. We had plenty of possession but Hughes and Ainge kept kicking for touch as if it was a rugby game plus we couldn't put enough passes together...... Styche on the wing! So we have let go of Heaton, Portas, Turnbull and Gillies and brought in...

TW still needs to show he can make us hard to score against and hard to beat. Even today, good point though it was, it frequently sounded a bit too end to end and open. Most teams find it fairly effortless to score against us whether it's a Kidderminster or an Ashton although to be fair we are a bi...

Re: Ashton United on Monday

Positives - fought-back, a point is a good one after being 2 down in 30 minutes. Negatives - The defence needs sorting, 17 goals conceded in 7 which is the joint-worst in the league. Vaulks was on the bench today for Whitby so probably worth trying to get him back if possible. TW seems adamant on go...

Re: Darlington V Altrincham Match thread

Phil Turnbull - good player but whilst under-contract with us he said “come sign me” to a South Shields fan videoing him just after the season ended.

I also don’t think he provided much defensive protection, he did a good job but hardly broke up play.
